Horoscopes (Dec. 6-12)

by

ARIES (March 21- April 20):

You keep accusing someone of being too negative, when the fact is, you can't handle it when people are 100% honest. Be careful with your judgments. Whoever you are putting down is way ahead of the game. If you could get over yourself you could learn a lot from them. From the looks of things you're too invested in being right and keeping things the way they are to confront the deeper aspects of your issues. For your own sake, back up and see if you can get humble enough to admit that you are not totally enlightened and could actually be wrong about a few things.

TAURUS (April 21 -May 20):

All of a sudden kindred spirits have shown up to make you feel like you've got your groove back. There's nothing wrong with this, but before you get too comfortable, you might want to check their motives, and look at your own needs for flattery and approval. It's been said that any relationship that is based on "need" or "use" is not based on love and will end in violence. You've been here many times before. Forewarned is forearmed. Your new fan has "I am here to use you" written all over them, and you are weak enough to "need to be needed" at this point in time.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20):

Maybe it's time to just say "no" to anyone who keeps expecting you to be all things to all people. With enough on your plate to sink a ship the last thing you need is one more needy bugger expecting you to do their bidding. At this point it would be great if you could walk off the set and get away from it all — just long enough to return to center and get a sense of clarity about what matters now. I say this because too many things are coming to a head in your own life, and your availability to others is a distraction that keeps you from being 100 percent there for yourself.

CANCER (June 21-July 20):

You go back and forth from being totally OK with all of this to wondering if it's time to be doing something else. It's so hard to stay in the moment when you're obsessing about what you need to accomplish, or keep wondering why something must always be more important than whatever living is supposed to be about. The mad rush to get wherever you think you're going has turned out to be the cross on which you get nailed. Slowing down to a crawl will show you that there is nothing going on here. It's time to turn off the treadmill and remember how to live.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 20):

Learning how to let go of what you think matters more than anything is a trick that few of us are able to master until we're old enough to know how to get around it. You're in a situation that looks like you'd be better off giving it up. The idea that you need anything this badly is a sure sign that you don't. It's hard to believe that in the act of releasing our attachments we begin to connect with what's real. If this is meant to endure it will continue. No attempt to force things to go your way will go as far as the ability to give it all up to whatever is in everyone's highest good.

VIRGO (Aug. 21-Sept. 20):

Your perfection trips are making it hard to accept the fact that you're human. No matter how this is surfacing, you need to keep an eye on what it might mean to give yourself a break. I see others expecting too much from you, at a time when your reserve strength is out to lunch. Being strong enough to ask for what you need would help. Drawing a few boundaries wouldn't be a bad idea either. There is light at the end of the tunnel. In a couple of weeks you will be out of the woods and able to breathe deep and look at what makes you happy, and at what it will take to bring it about.

LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20):

It would be good if you could lay off needing to have all of this go your way. It looks to me like someone is boxed into a corner and in the guise of "being there for them" you could actually be controlling the hell out of a situation that has you and your needs written all over it. The best case scenario will come into play the minute you back up and realize that things go better when you want for others what they want for themselves. With any luck you'll do some soul searching, your sense of fair play will kick in, and you'll wake up enough to be 100 percent here for this.

SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 20):

You could make it easier on yourself if you could learn how to back off when things don't seem to be working. The need to "make it happen" presses many of us to keep on trucking until we realize that life doesn't work that way. Ease up a little. If you think your will has governance over other people and their choices you haven't figured out that none of this is up to you. Forget about being in control. Disengage enough to allow every other factor in this equation to inform you that things will work better if you lighten up and stop taking yourself so seriously.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21-Dec. 20):

From what I can see your current situation is one of those Karmic tests, in which you get to find out what's real and what isn't. If this feels like a dream come true, before too long, changes in the way people behave will start to ring up the need to see things for what they are, instead of seeing what you want to see. As you wipe the dew off your rose-colored glasses you will become aware of the fact that others are only OK with you and your stuff as long as you adhere to certain guidelines. The minute you start being true to yourself, their tune will change in a heartbeat.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20):

One way or another all of your chickens are coming home to roost. Recent changes have resulted in a huge windfall or a huge setback. If you've been getting away with murder the jig is totally up. If you've been going to the well every day and keeping your heart to the wheel, the next year or so will give you a chance to bring your efforts to the highest level of expression. Your love life? You've been on the fence and torn in two for a long time. Get ready for a trial by fire. Your heart is on the ropes until everyone involved confronts themselves and has the guts to face the truth.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 20):

The next few weeks will see you wrapping things up just enough to move on to the next thing. As you keep more than one ball in the air, the need to stay focused is imperative. Others will be more demanding than usual. Keeping your priorities clear enough to know how much you really need to be there for them will make it easier to say "no" when it's necessary. Issues that relate to where your ambitions lie are making you think twice about your current occupation. Whatever this implies, the prospect of career changes and sudden advancements is a huge theme right now.

PISCES (Feb. 21-March 20):

Don't let your fixed ideas about what needs to happen interfere with what could replace them if you drop your perfect pictures and let life show you how it needs to go. The less you try to control things, the better. The next few months will see you at a milestone. It's as if the last seven years have altered the fabric of your reality to the point where a whole new story is ready to rise from the ashes of the past. As the next phase of your journey begins to unfold, know that your purpose may have nothing to do with whatever you had in mind and get good at reading the signs.
